Description

Intra is a world leading provider of image-guided healthcare in Interventional Cardiology, Interventional Radiology and Interventional Oncology. Our innovative patient focussed approach is minimally invasive with faster recovery times.

Intra (formerly Mercy Angiography) has changed their name to reflect their expanding range of services and to incorporate a second site which opened in July 2018 in North Harbour, Auckland.

 

Your patient’s care is our top priority

We are passionate about your patients regaining their quality of life; walking the dog, lifting a grandchild, returning to work. We are here to help you do that. We work alongside you.

The Intra care philosophy is about using New Zealand’s top specialists and technology to treat inside the body. Clean. Precise. Proven.

Our care philosophy + clinical excellence + high-tech approach = patient results.

 

World leading image-guided healthcare

Intra has been leading the way in innovative image-guided healthcare since 1990. This includes performing the first Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) in Asia Pacific.

Our services cover three speciality areas with more than 30 practising specialists. Depending on the procedure, patients may go to Epsom or our soon to be opened North Harbour location.

We have New Zealand’s top specialists. They combine their trusted minds and hands to deliver a patient experience that is second-to-none.

 

Your patient is at the heart of everything we do

Intra is not just a facility. Our staff to patient ratios are high and our team of nurses, radiographers and administrative personnel are handpicked for their skills and experience to ensure we deliver the best patient care.
